Author, lover of real life mysteries and walking the Devon moors.
I'm delighted to say that my new book, Breaking the Mould, the Suffragette Story in North Devon is now at the printers and will be available via this web site very soon.
It's all about the books ...
"Fantastic book, one you can't put down once you've started. A very gripping story very well portrayed."
What a read! You certainly are a mistress of intrigue. The book is not only a brilliant statement about injustice, professional expectations, fostering, adoption and the impossibly difficult task social workers can have, it is full of skilfully crafted, insightful, 'pearls of wisdom' to do with how we all tick as human beings and in relationships."
"[Shadow Child] is fantastic. You have such a gift for touching people's emotions."
“...I've just finished Seeds of Doubt; WONDERFUL. I loved it, it has all the right ingredients - drama, tension, intrigue, love, secrets, danger and truth. Thank you so much for a thought-provoking and thoroughly edge-of-the-seat read.”
"To build a conspiracy thriller on an event as well known as the Lynmouth flood disaster, and to make it both plausible and exciting, is no mean feat. The dialogue is well written and convincing and the plot is unpredictable with enough twists to keep any thriller reader happy.”
"When I started reading this book, I was seduced by the magic of the prose. I was transported straight back to the early eighties and accompanied the heroine on the visits to Exmoor with enthusiasm. But then I got hooked into the story and the day trip became an all-nighter! Brilliantly written and researched. I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys a story based on seeds of truth."
One of the original pioneers of the computer was born over 200 years ago in Great Torrington in the West of England. His name was Thomas Fowler.
This is a story of stunning resilience and ingenuity in the face of professional prejudice, betrayal and heart-breaking twists of fate. It is a story of an invention destined to re-write the history of computing.
"Computers might have changed history and our world almost a century sooner had the ideas of Fowler been understood and adopted by Babbage". Dr Ralph Merkle, Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Molecular Manufacturing, California.
A fascinating, candid and tremendously moving reflection of a life and times slowly receding into history.
In My Own Words evolved out of times shared in front of Johnny’s coal fire when his recollections were freely given and much enjoyed. Then one day he asked if I would write his story. It has been a pleasure and a privilege; one he would be happy to know is now being shared by others.
Edited by Pamela Vass with additional material by David Hogan.

"I felt I must tell you how helpful I am finding your book on CFS/ME. I've been so grateful for it, it's like my "bible!" I’m planning on taking it on holiday with me … makes me feel secure having all the advice with me. One thing I especially like is that the book is very user-friendly, the way it's laid out, summaries etc. The bold letters are also extremely useful and the type of spine makes it easy to turn over, keep your place. Thank you very much, Pamela."
